ackward as hell

Excerpt: First and formost the picture's sucked.A friend broke my Nikon coolpic and replaced it with this which cost a lot more and the picture where blurry.It looks cool though.Battery life was pretty good.The features where very cool also.But that still didn't make up for fuzzy shots
Summary: Sure my Canon sd-30 is super cute and I get lots of compliments on how small and sexy it is, but heaven forbid you want to take pictures with it!! This camera cannot take pictures in low light AT ALL! Every picture I've taken at parties has been out of focus, which adds up to a lot of hazy photos of great memories. I took it back to the camera shop and the guy said I had the setting right but "yeah, they don't work well in low light.
Summary: I got this camera for a good price and it came with a free case so I thought I got a good deal until I tried to install the software. After crashing my up-to-date, always backed-up, clean installed Win XP machine several times, it managed to get through what seemed like 10 minutes of installing about 9 different programs and drivers. It suggested a restart and I complied.
